    Former Employee - All Purpose Clerk in Tucson, AZ

    I worked at Safeway part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    After 2-3 years, you start getting seniority and do not have to work the closing shifts. If you are in a store with a high turnover, you may even be lucky to choose a few of your shifts.

    Cons

    Management absolutely does not care about you. To them, you are just a number and they will treat you how ever they deem necessary to achieve results. I understand a company needs to be profitable, but not at the expense of a horrible morale. The policies are so meaningless seing as half the people follow them and the other half don't. The pay sucks, seeing as it took me seven years to only get $11.50 an hour. You top out at $12 and change and after that you are done moving up..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your cashiers with respect. Front End is supposedly the most important area of the store because it leaves a lasting impression? Prove that it means something by being kind to your front end.

    Pros

    good starting pay, lots of different positions to move to in the company, future employers like to see the experience.great stock investment plan.

    Cons

    Alot of times the managers are people who have never worked as a cashier and are rude to you as a result.Hours are a nightmare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    you need to focus more on hiring from within, and make hr more readily available.
